Most voters want Johnson out, says poll


A SNAP poll released by Opinium this afternoon shows a majority of the public think Conservative MPs should give the thumbs down to Boris Johnson in this evening’s vote of no confidence.  Of the 2,062 people polled, 59 per cent think MPs should vote against the Prime Minister versus 28 per cent who think they should vote to keep him as leader.


The same poll found the public think Johnson is untrustworthy (71 per cent), out of touch (71 per cent), incompetent (65 per cent), weak (58 per cent) and dislikeable (55 per cent).

The poll shows fewer (34 per cent) Conservative voters believing it is time for the Prime Minister to go, while 53 per cent think he should stay.

Should he win – and it is hard to believe it the result will be anything but narrow – it will only prolong the agony for him, says Conservative Home’s editor Paul Goodman.

Those MPs thinking they need to keep him in for his ‘leadership’ on Ukraine, well, they need their heads checking.
